Headed by Lt. Jeff Braun, Commander, the Patrol/Administration Division is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the uniform section of the Police Department. The Patrol Division is divided into three squads, each headed by a Sergeant Squad Leader and a Corporal Assistant Squad Leader. They provide the marked Police patrol units that are on duty 24 hours a day. The Patrol Division responds to approximately 15,000 radio runs per year.
Located within the Patrol Division are the Bicycle unit, Traffic Safety unit, Motor Unit, and the Alcohol Testing unit. The division provides patrol in the traditional marked patrol vehicles as well as foot and unmarked patrol. The diversity of coverage enables officers to go almost everywhere and, in many cases, those places where the criminal is least likely to expect them.
The Division investigates approximately 700 accidents per year. The Traffic Safety team consists of three certified Auto Accident Reconstructionists. All marked patrol units also carry Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) and respond to cardiac emergencies applying life-saving techniques as quickly as possible.
The Delhi Township Motor Unit was active in the late 1990’s early 2000. At that time the Police Department operated two three-wheeled motorcycles purchased from the Cincinnati Police Department. The program ended after the cost of repairing the units was much greater than the benefit of their use. In 2009 the Motor Unit was revitalize by Police Chief Jim Howarth. In April, the township purchase their first two-wheeled motorcycle - a 2009 Harley Davidson. Corporal Frank Gentile became the first two-wheeled motorcycle rider for the Township of Delhi. Corporal Gentile was chosen as the result of his experience as a motorcycle rider. He has attended both the Harley Davidson motorcycle course sponsored by Northwestern and a training course sponsored by the Cincinnati Police Department. Corporal Gentile continues his training monthly with the Cincinnati Police Department along with other agencies in the tri-state area.
The motorcycle is utilized for traffic enforcement and vehicle collision investigations as well as regular patrol duties.
On December 26th, 2014 the Police Department welcomed their newest officer “Levi” to the department. Levi and handler, Officer Jeff Miller, graduated from an extensive six week training program in Sharpsville PA (Shallow Creek) and four additional weeks with the City of Cincinnati Police Department canine academy. Levi becomes the third (Narco, Luger) canine in the departments history. Levi is crossed trained in both narcotic detection and suspect apprehension. The acquisition of Levi was made possible through the use of drugs funds (monies seized from drug dealers). Look for Levi and handler, Officer Jeff Miller, patrolling the street of Delhi Township.
